One Foot in the Grave 4.02 Descent into the Maelstrom (1993)
When Margaret falls ill Victor ‘looks after’ her for a couple of weeks. Her already shortened tether is almost immediately snapped thanks to Victor’s typical run of mishaps (involving giving away their video recorders… and car) but a visit from a child she used to teach, now grown up, provides a potential highlight.
A snappy episode with great chemistry between Richard Wilson and Annette Crosbie (after they kiss near the end they automatically take each other’s hand, you can hardly see it) and a nice sweet tone. It’s all topped off with a splendid visual gag involving a baby, it’s father and a gnome.
